Wind kicked up the water big time. Dirty flow right now. 28 degrees air temp when I drove in.
A little breezy right now, not as bad as Tues/Wed. Windy tomorrow. Cold tomorrow through Sunday.
No docks in yet
The water clarity is very low with he high winds. Today there was not one boat around.
A friend was out yesterday and caught 1 48 inch musky on a jig. These guys fished hard and are good fishermen.
The bite can be tough for a day or so until water clarity improves. Bright colors , baits that vibrate help in theses conditions. Even paddle tails, zip lures, Rippin raps are some baits to use.
Sunday I fished noon til 8 pm.
I caught a bunch of walleyes. Near dark and after I caught some females. The walleye fishing will only get better.
I have dates open in March and April . De Pere and other trophy jigging locations on the Green Bay.

To "rngrwpn" in response to your question about what your doing wrong. Believe me it's not just trying to copy what the next boat is getting them on. Even if they cut the lure from their pole and gave it to you would it work. What I mean is, yes lure selection or (profile) is important, but there are many other important factors. For instance, I believe boat control is as crucial as type of bait. You have to have your bait in the water column that looks natural with the way other bait fish are flowing with the current. Another key factor is confidence, you know they are there in numbers so believe in yourself. Putting all of the pieces together for what works for you and you alone. Believe me it works.
Out yesterday and Sunday - water was clear enough to see the prop on the big motor - clearer than i've ever seen the Fox.
Fished 11 - 2
Put 2 in the boat and lost 3.
Fished from the drop at the dam down to railroad bridge (long drift)
Tried vertical while drifting, casting and retrieving on spot lock, tried depths from 7-28'
Marked good fish on the edge of the channel on Sunday, couldnt get them to bite. Didnt mark much yesterday, but got those 4 to bite. 1 came from 28'FOW other 3 were in 9FOW.
Not sure what I am doing wrong versus the guy with 30+ fish yesterday. Using fatheads and many colors/weights across the guys in the boat for jigs.
Fished yesturday from 10:30-3 and boated roughly 35 walleyes. Many small 15-20" females caught. Stayed away from the crowd and worked the drop-offs. Live bait over plastics
I don't know about most guys here, but for me, I couldn't care less about a report. if the water is NOT brown mud or super windy going up the river, you should go fish. If conditions are good, go. If they are bad stay home.
I've not once gone to depere and not caught fish. People know this, even on good days i see people sitting around twiddling their thumbs. If you aren't getting fish by the damn (which i never fish), go down river. there are holes and flats all the way down to the mouth. All the fish don't spawn at the damn....it's pretty simple stuff. Keep moving till you find them. All the people begging for reports it's sickening. Go fish people. if you want to know if the river is MUD, look at the port of green bays web cam. You can see plain as the sky is blue. If it's mud, don't waste your time. it will clear in a few days and be back to normal. That's the best piece of information you'll get from here, use it.
